I haven't been reading about the Mayans. So, no, I don't mean that as in 'The end of the world is nigh' but as in 'New Zealand is the end of the world'.
We were looking up at the sky and discussing the fact that you never see aeroplane vapour trails in New Zealand.
You come to or go from this country. You never transit through it to anywhere else internationally only internally or possibly to some of the Pacific Islands - in which case you would never fly over New Zealand's main landmasses at vapour trail altitude anyway.
Funny really because I can't think of any other major country where that is the case. Unless you know otherwise.
PS I recorded 38℃ on the terrace in the shade at 1100 hrs this morning. It was wonderful.
